matchbook stories: issue one

by Grace Bonney

I’m fully in love with all of the creative ways artists and writers are embracing print these days. From hand-printed zines to well-crafted quarterlies, it’s really wonderful to have so many options to hold and admire in your hands. Matchbook Stories is a new project that presents a literary magazine in matchbook form. Each issue is delivered in a tiny box and gathers four miniature stories (each in its own matchbook) inside. The debut collection includes writing from Matchbook Stories‘ editors, Ioanna Mavrou and Lee Jing-Jing. Each issue is handmade and only 100 will be printed, so if you’re interested in grabbing an edition, click here to check it out and place an order ($32 each). I love creative limited editions like this, they really showcase the handmade process and how special it is to own something like this. xo, grace
